While it has already dropped the price of Surface RT and Pro tablets in some regions, Microsoft has now decided to drop prices on Surface RT bundles and the Touch Cover as well as to make Surface price cuts permanent in all regions.
According to a report from ZDNet, Microsoft thinks that the customer response to recent Surface pricing and keyboard-cover promotions has been good and has decided to launch Surface Pro, Touch Cover and Surface RT bundles at even more affordable prices starting as of August 29th. The price cuts will be available all around the globe.
The Surface Pro will now have a permanant starting price of US $799 while the Surface RT will start from US $399. Even the Touch Cover got its much needed price cut from rather insane US $119 down to a decidedly less insane US $79.
